Description
 
"No serious scholar of Buddhist studies can afford to ignore this argumentative, challenging, and provocative set of essays.... In each case, Schopen's arguments are refreshing, honest, often brilliant, and always cogently presented." --Journal of Religion
"Shopen has written a number of articles that have challenged some of the most basic assumptions in the field of Buddhist Studies, and this book is a collection of the most influential of his works. Several are rightly regarded as classic studies in the field, and all should be required reading for anyone with more than a passing interest in Buddhist Studies." --Japanese Journal of Religious Studies, Fall 1998

"Schopen's treatment of this material has been extremely insightful and original, and his work has been instrumental in overturning many of the cherished convictions that had long constituted the 'received wisdom' of Buddhist studies. In particular, his articles have prompted significant revision in thought regarding the development of Mahayana and regarding the role of the monastic religious in Buddhist cultic life." --Philosophy East and West
